What Our Patients Say About Scleral Lenses
Maurice is from Charlotte, NC and was recently in our office picking up his new scleral lenses. He has been wearing scleral lenses since coming to Complete Eye Care due to his extremely high nearsightedness. In the past, Tiger had to wear hard lenses known as “RGP” or Rigid Gas Permeable contacts, but when he saw Dr. Marcussen for an eye exam, she fit him in scleral lenses.
Robert is from Gaston County and was in our office recently to pick up his scleral lenses. He has keratoconus and had a corneal transplant so it is critical that his contacts fit well. Robert wanted something that was comfortable and provided clear vision. He found the solution with scleral contacts. Robert now has clear vison all day and has maintained good eye health due to the special way scleral lenses are fit and evaluated.
Stephanie is from Charlotte, NC and was in recently to pick up her new sclerals. She has keratoconus and had to have a corneal transplant in her left eye as a result. Both keratoconus and corneal transplants cause decreased vision with glasses.
Hard contacts are required to see clearly, however they can’t be worn once a corneal transplant is done. Stephanie was excited to hear about scleral contacts lenses as an option! She found out she could correct her vision even after a corneal transplant and that they were also safe to wear. Since scleral contacts vault over the corneal they are extremely safe to wear even with corneal transplants or keratoconus.
Stephanie is from Mt. Holly, NC and she had Lasik surgery to correct her nearsightedness. A few years after her Lasik surgery, she noticed she could not see as well and went to the doctor for glasses. Stephanie reported being told she had cornea ectasia which is an unfortunate outcome of Lasik surgery for some people.
This result happens when too much corneal tissue is removed during Lasik and the resulting cornea is too thin. This allows the cornea to bulge up during normal eye pressure. This budging up of the cornea is similar to keratoconus because it causes irregular astigmatism which cannot be corrected by glasses. Only certain contacts such as scleral contacts can restore normal sight to an eye with corneal ectasia due to Lasik surgery.
Tanner is from McAdenville, NC and came to us for a regular routine eye exam and was found to have 20/400 vision in one eye and 20/100 vision in the other. He was not able to see clearly to drive to work and even had to use Uber at night because he could not see clearly. Tanner was fit in scleral contacts to correct for his keratoconus and now he sees 20/20. The smile on Tanner’s face when he first put in his scleral contacts was awesome!

Scleral Lenses For Keratoconus?
Scleral Lenses are considered the "gold standard" for patients with Keratoconus. The Scleral Lenses vault over the eye providing a smooth surface for people with Kerotoconus and ensuring comfort designed for their eye.
Scleral Lenses For Dry Eyes
Scleral lenses have long been a top choice for patients with dry eyes, which effects around 50% of contact lens wearers. The extra wide contact provides extra room for the storage of your eyes natural lubricant minimizing the need for eye drops and other topical medications.
Scleral Lenses Post Surgery
While eye surgery such as Lasik have high success rates, not everyone who has the surgery leaves with perfect vision. Due to the smooth rigid surface of Scleral Lenses, our eye doctors often recommend Scleral lenses for post Lasik patients in need of vision correction.
